Matte, Replogle to Serve as Michigan State Game Captains
Oct. 4, 2012
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Seniors Will Matte and Adam Replogle will serve as captains for the fifth time in as many games when Indiana hosts Michigan State on IU's 100th Homecoming Saturday afternoon. The duo has combined to fill the game captain role a combined 28 times previously in their careers, 15 times for Replogle and 13 for Matte.
Matte, a fifth-year center from Wheaton, Ill., has been a mainstay on the Hoosier offensive line since his arrival in Bloomington. His efforts have not gone unnoticed by the national awards pundits, earning a spot on the Rimington Trophy Watch List this preseason. Matte has 37 career starts, including his first 32 games.
Replogle, a defensive tackle, has appeared in all 40 games in his career and has started the last 39. He is tied for the team lead with 28 tackles and second on the team with 1.5 sacks and 3.5 tackles for loss through four games. Replogle was elected a 2011 season captain and owns 141 tackles, 11.5 sacks and 19 tackles for loss in his career.
Saturday's kickoff is set for noon EDT at Memorial Stadium (52,929; FieldTurf) and BTN will broadcast the game.
